Campbelltown City Council has outlined its plans for a vibrant, thriving and successful city of the future, in its draft Community Strategic Plan 2017-2027, which is on exhibition for public input until Friday 9 June.
The 10-year plan was developed in consultation with the community, to ensure Campbelltown remains strong and resilient, and is ready for the growth in population, housing, industry and jobs forecast over the next 20 years.
It reflects community aspirations for a city designed for ‘ambition, innovation and opportunity’, and aims to deliver four key outcomes – a vibrant and liveable city, a city which respects and protects its natural environment, a thriving and attractive city, and a successful city.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, said the community, including residents, property and business owners, community groups, workers and students, had been eager to share their vision for the Campbelltown City of the future.
“The community told us they want a city designed for ambition, innovation and opportunity, and the draft Community Strategic Plan reflects those aspirations,” he said.
“The population of Campbelltown City is expected to grow from 158,000 to around 270,000 people by 2036, and while growth on that scale may seem daunting, it is also an exciting opportunity to do things a little bit differently.
“The draft plan includes strategies for conserving the city’s natural environment and improving connectivity between Western Sydney’s cities, and will ensure we have a solid basis on which to build a great city, with a dynamic economy where businesses and families can thrive.”
